The weather in Seychelles can vary depending on the time of year, so make sure to check the weather conditions before embarking on your trip.

For novices, the best time to sail in Seychelles is between March and May or September and November. During these months, the weather is perfect, and the winds are light, making it easier to navigate with little chance of challenging conditions. But if you are looking for a bit more breeze in your sails, then plan your trip around the trade winds, which are at their most constant from May to October (south-easterly), with very little rainfall. From December to March, the trade winds blow in a northwesterly direction and occasional rain squalls can be expected.

However, when sailing in the Seychelles - as with anywhere in the world - it is important to be aware of any sudden changing weather conditions. The winds can pick up quickly, and the currents can be strong in certain places. So its always important to keep your eye on weather reports and your local charts.
